This week’s topic for The Broke and the Bookish‘s Top Ten Tuesday is “Unique Book Titles”, but – once again – I’m giving my own twist to it.
There are so many unique book titles out there, that I’m going to go with the book titles that immediately grabbed my attention. Okay, sometimes the cover has something to do with it as well, but it also happens that the title just goes: “READ ME!”
Now this one I hadn’t heard a thing about before the title popped up on my screen. I saw it and just.. Jack Sparrow. That’s what immediately resonated in my mind. It said “pirate” so I simply had to have it. Read it. Worth it!!
Reading that title I immediately imagined that there would be two POV’s. One boy, one girl and then.. Let the fight begin! Okay, no, not really. I just thought we’d get both sides of a story filled with miscommunication. Then I read the blurb and was SOLD.
The title of this one just oozed darkness, in my humble opinion. I was intrigued immediately! Safe to say I just went ahead and bought it. Haven’t bought the sequel yet, since I wanted to read this one first and then decide – but I’ll probably order it. Because, you know, I’m me.
If you know me a bit, you might know that I try to go to London at least once a year. One of those years I went on a Jack the Ripper walk with my mom, so obviously.. When I saw this title I just went “Jack the Ripper? LONDON! YES!” and had to have it. Because. London.
Okay, I admit I also ordered Hunting Prince Dracula but, you know, that’s normal.
I’m a bit of a mean person when it comes to people and their fears – sometimes, not when it comes to really serious things! – so this one grabbed my attention because of that. I immediately thought of all the things someone would go through if they’d actually make a list like that.
Are you ready?!
It says “library”.
I love dogs. Although I don’t have any, my mom has two and I miss those two fluffballs so much. Reading this title, I honestly was curious about what a dog walker would possible write in her diary. Reading the blurb, I was even more sold! Definitely worth a read!
Now, that title, that’s one that made me go.. “Okay, so we know how it ends already?!” Am I the only one who wants to find out how invested we can get in a story while knowing the end? I’ve read some reviews of people thinking they wouldn’t get invested and ended up crying!
I still really need to read this one. At least I already bought it by now..
I’ll buy it eventually, haha!
So, any of you agree? Or would’ve added these titles for some other reason?
